Fun time, Exotic Animals

Great hidden treasure in Goshen Connecticut. They have tons of animals from bison, ostriches, elk, zebras, antelope, ostriches, water buffalo, deer, and much much more. Once you've finished your adventure you can stop into the discovery center which has many animal dioramas, an extensive gift shop, a huge live reptile exhibit which has snakes, lizards, and turtles. This is a... More

I was here with family and friends last weekend. It costs $10/pp, plus $5 if you want grain (food) to feed the animals, which I recommend getting. The safari is drive through, but you can get out and walk around. They have hundreds of animals, many of them exotic and indigenous to Africa or other areas of the world. I'd... More

Pastured in a former dairy farm, herds of animals from six continents roam, feed and interact in a natural environment. This is not a "zoo" in a traditional sense. There is no attempt to have a "Noah's ark" variety of display, there are no predators, you will not see elephants, camels, or rhinos. Most animals are suited to live in... More

We went as a joke with our good friends, but ended up unexpectedly enjoying our afternoon at Action Wildlife. After a really long explanation of our different options to tour the park from the verbose gate attendant, we opted to go to the visitors center first where we enjoyed posing for pictures with taxidermied exotic and North American fauna featured...

Who would not love to pet and feed a zebra? We had a great time walking around enjoying the animals and seeing them in a close to natural environment. The little petting zoo where you can bottle feed the baby animals is adorable.

It's a drive/ walk thru animal "Safari" without much in the way of animals. Our young grandkids did enjoy the playground( we brought a picnic lunch) animals , petting zoo: the museum ( with a bunch of diorama' s )was the most interesting . Save it for last . Don't bother if you don't have kids in this age group... More

This was a nice family outing, but was expensive to get in. You had the choice of driving around to see the animals, or walking.

We spent a wonderful day here. Ate a picnic lunch right by the zebra. Our 2 year old grandson loved running around and feeding the animals in the petting zoo. Even our 2 nieces age 15 and 4 loved it. Beautiful museum. The gift shop was very reasonably priced. You drive your car around and are encouraged to stop along... More

We walked through the entire park. You can park up on the hill and walk. You have the option to drive through. There's a small barn/petting zoo where you can feed the babies grain for $1 or milk from a bottle for $3. We did both. They had baby goats, a bull and a donkey. The walk/ride area have longhorn...

The good thing is it costs no extra to drive your vehicle around this attraction, but the road around the 'safari' is very rough. You'll see a few deer (but we only saw one of the types), and some birds or ducks, and maybe a turtle at the pond. The fenced corrals have some farm animals, and a zebra, llamas,... More
